Bug Bite

Going straight back to work after a long weekend of camping had been quite the challenge for Finn and Rachel. Luckily, Finn didn’t have that much to do since he was an extra, and he spent most of his days sitting in the audience watching Rachel do scenes together with her co-stars. He had to give himself credit for being able to keep quiet when Rachel was doing a scene that involved any kind of romance or intimacy with another co-star. Just a few weeks ago, he would’ve ran up on stage and interrupted the entire scene.

Now, Finn just sat there and admired the work of his wife (mostly the work of her body and how he would treat it once they got home), while occasionally yawning and feeling a bit bored about just sitting there. Today, he had been sitting for two hours straight, while Rachel was rehearsing dance number after dance number. When it finally was time for a break, Finn sat up straight to see Rachel when she got off stage, waving at her to join him.

So both of my arms are messed up. My left was bitten by some mysterious bug. And the other was dislocated when keith and I were goofing around last night. Any way, two specialist had to look at my left arm. the doctor i normally see was so unsure about the kind of bit that could have dont this to me. So she had another doctor examine the bite. Then they removed the stinger from my arm and left the room. I could hear both doctors talking about the possible kinds of medication they could give me. Shots. An ointment. But the doctor gave me pills, its this type of steroid to cure both arms. I think its kind of cool that I’m on a legitimate form of steroids as a medication. Ever since middle school and all throughout highschool my classmates would openly joke about me being on steroids — they thought I was way muscular for a girl, or whatever. Those tards. But atleast I can say I’ve taken steroids. Ha.

Momma or sea bear or whoever.... Could you do a post on bug bites and how to relieve the itching and burning of them? I have so many and it's hard to concentrate on anything...

 Momma has a secret for you-

 The only thing that you need on your bug bites is antiperspirant. The deodorant that you put on your underarms. Put that on your bug bites, and you’re set.

 If you like herbal remedies better, use witch hazel.

there is a bug bite on my chin, and i keep scratching at it. but i really shouldnt because i might get one of those nasty bug bite scars, and i really dont want that on my face. so i decided to be a mommy and put a bandaid on my chin like a kid. so i wont touch it anymore.. so that is why it says “fear my roar!”… on my chin.
